Tomorrow the Meret Oppenheim retrospective will officially open in the Gropius-Bau art museum near Potsdamer Platz. The museum had the official pre-opening press conference today and the participants were able to view the exhibition in advance. For those who don’t know who Meret Oppenheim was (I didn’t initially): she is – or rather was – one of the most important female Surrealist artists of the 20th Century!
“Tarantel 2”, the new exhibition at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, brings together four international photographers – Elin Høyland from Norway, Vadim Gushchin and Lucia Ganieva from Russia and Thomas Sandberg from Germany. Four very different sujets but equally fascinating; highly recommended. The exhibition is running until 4th August 2013 and entry is free. Check out www.bethanien.de/en/exhibitions/tarantel-2. And here is the globe-M article: Der Biss der Spinne.
A new C/O Berlin exhibition which is starting tomorrow – Globe-M article: Amerika in Berlin. The background: C/O Berlin is one of the most high-profile photography exhibition galleries in Berlin. They’re a non-profit foundation and were established in 2000; for many photography fans they have an almost iconic status. For the last 13 years C/O Berlin was based in the old Postfuhramt on Oranienburger Straße in Mitte, a truly spectacular historical building. However, this March the gallery had to leave its Mitte location; they moved to Charlottenburg instead, into the Amerika Haus on Hardenbergstraße just behind Bahnhof Zoo train station.

German sculptor Bogomir Ecker collects historical photographs from all over the world and from all decades – and the Museum of Photography here in Berlin is showing his latest photo installation “Idylle & Desaster” (exhibition website). Very worthwhile.

Gestalten gallery (www.gestalten.com/space) in Berlin-Mitte is currently showing “Nostalgia”, a small exhibition of very early colour photographs by Russian photographer Michailowitch Prokudin-Gorski. In 1906 he travelled across Russia to systematically document the different regions, peoples and landscapes of Tsarist Russia; I love photography (especially early photography and travel photography) so I decided to make this my next globe-M article…..! Sophie-Gips-Höfe near Hacke’scher Markt. Free entry!
And here is the globe-M article about the exhibition: Farbenfrohes Zarenreich.
Next week is going to be hectic! On 4th October the new photography exhibition at Berlinische Galerie museum opens: “Geschlossene Gesellschaft” – social and artsy photography in the German Democratic Republic 1949 to 1989. The exhibition features some 250 pictures by 34 photographers. I know next to nothing about GDR photography so this should be interesting. The exhibition starts at 7pm, free entry on the first night, check it out: Berlinische Galerie.
